Today’s post is going up so late because I spent the past six hours with a friend procuring a pumpkin and making gluten-free pumpkin bread from scratch… It was an ordeal, but thank goodness the loaves turned out yummy! I also asked him to take a cheesy picture of me mixing the batter like in a 1950s housewife commercial for today’s cover photo—I think we nailed it. In other news, this past week marked halfway through the quarter, which meant I spent a bulk of my time studying for two midterms.

October’s theme is fall outfit recreations, so this week’s weekly recap has a series of outfits I tried to recreate from Pinterest. Having not done laundry in a while (and with a lot of my clothes back in my closet at home) it was a fun challenge each morning to find an outfit where I had all the necessary (clean) pieces to recreate it. I used to spend a lot of time trying to put together outfits based on looks I saw on Pinterest, but it’s been a while since I’ve done so. I love how it inspires me to look at my closet differently and think of outfits I wouldn’t have otherwise put together. Keep reading to see the looks and to hear why I got my pic taken with Groot!
